After going undrafted in 2018, Bryant has worked his way into securing a spot in the NBA through avenues such as the Summer League and overseas. Bryant played for the Philadelphia 76ers in last year’s Summer League. Unfortunately, he did not get any offers around the NBA.
Bryant then moved to the international scene and signed a one-year deal with Hapoel Eilat of the Israeli Premier League. In 31 games last season, Bryant averaged 17.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.4 steals, while shooting 56.4 percent from the field. His strong 2018-19 campaign earned him a spot on the All-Israeli League First Team.
After a magnificent first season overseas, the 6-foot-5 two-guard once again secured a spot on a Summer League roster this offseason. In four games with the Bucks, Bryant averaged 14.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 3.3 assists while shooting 53 percent from the field.
He appeared to showcase just enough; teams are already trying to acquire his services next season. All he has to do is make a decision.
However, there’s no indication whether Bryant will get a guaranteed deal at the onset of this next process. Teams might opt to give the Summer League standout a two-way contract first so that they can shuffle him into the G-League and into the main roster to evaluate him further.
